Update time!
 

@TrevioriuS: The surfaces of the crafts looked a bit like the spaceship versions of matchbox cars (although they are no cars). Is it that what you had in mind? Modding materials in povray is still a cryptic book for me, but I somehow managed to tweak the metal texture a bit to a different look which is not so shiny. So what about that?
 
@vierbit: It's a sad story to remove all these details that made it in the models over all the time. But yes, they just looks like distortions. Seems like I have to revamp the models again.  :-\
 
@Dr.D : Ha! I asked myself everytime why Janeway's Voyager starship from Star Trek looks like polished after years in hostile space. But that's another story.

 
The Reptiloid Fleet: a) heavy fighter, b) light fighter, c) transporter with fuel capsule, d) tripod fighter (3 joined heavy fighers)

Finally, I finished all 20 "vessels". They look not as good as the spaceships in Tanscendence or Escape Velocity Nova and additionally they look a bit like "toy"-starships. I think this is because the surface textures of my crafts are not that advanced. (Looks like the other games use handmade textures) But somehow the Nanovoid ships have their own (not so 100% realistic) style and so I think they could be good enough.

I tried to remove the "small" details on all crafts as they did not really give that much of improvement. In the hope to get a cleaner look. Hope you like it...  ;)

really cool design and most of them read well.
maybe the laserstar isnt defined enough or it just a matter of taste.
i love the ingame action on your site, is it a mockup or its real?

Somehow, I have managed to squeeze a bit more out of the laserstar... (EDIT) and... "the tentacle of the Bastard"

That ingame animation is from the gameplay prototype. (which has old graphics) Nevertheless, you can play it if you want. You may find it here, where you also can take a look at the old graphics. (or better not)  ;) Do not expect too much, it is just the prototype.

As a huge fan of the escape velocity series, I'm super excited about this!
